Osttirol: a paradise for fly-fishers

When fly-fishers travel hundreds of kilometres from Italy, Switzerland and Holland to Osttirol just to go fishing, then it has to be something special. And they admit it – fly-fishers are inspired by the opportunities which the Isel and the little and big Drau offer. Osttirol has always been a paradise for anglers and fishermen. From the wild and romantic mountain streams through to the somewhat more calmer waters of the rivers heading out of the valley – 33 different fish species live in Osttirol.

Adventure fishing at 2500 metres altitude

A few hotels provide package deals for anglers. From a value-for-money guesthouse, to an exclusive hotel, including all the comforts and guides – Osttirol has something for everyone.
